There are many ways in which Zali and I are alike... from looking at baby photos we certainly looked alike. We both keep messy rooms, we both love craft and we both do our best work late at night when we really should be asleep. And I suspect when she is older Zali will also worship the twin gods of sport and questionable television.
This however, is where we are not the same... Firstly, I have never held a fish like that. Certainly not one that I caught at After School Care that afternoon. I would never ask if I could hold it on the way home in the car. I would never watch Jon doing his fish filleting from about an inch away (in fact I found this so gross I had to go outside while this was happening). And I would certainly never, ever, finish up the afternoon by eating the fish and lamenting that there was not more.
I think this is probably a good thing.
But as a side note, how cool is it that they can do that at After School Care. The beach is 30 seconds walk away and apparently every kid (of about 20) pulled in a fish that afternoon although only a couple were big enough to keep. Yay Hobart. Oh apparently this is an Australian Salmon and according to Zali and Jon, it tastes great. ugg.
